BLACKPINK, U.S. Rolling Stone cover model
South Korea’s four-member girl group BLACKPINK has been on the cover of Rolling Stone, a famous American music media.
Rolling Stone selected Black Pink as the cover model for the June issue, describing it as “Pop Supernova” on the 23rd (local time).
“BLACKPINK is one of the most popular artists Korea has produced,” Rolling Stone said. “Their tremendous success is part of the Korean Wave, which refers to the global popularity of the Korean cultural industry.”
“BLACKPINK’s music gives off explosive power. It is both addictive and invigorating, he said. “It creates sparks by mixing house and electronic dance music (EDM) with hip-hop beats.”
Although Rolling Stone did not confirm in the report, a foreign media specializing in entertainment said that Black Pink became the third girl group to be on the cover of Rolling Stone after the British Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child in the U.S., and is the first Asian girl group.
“Blackpink’s hip-hop is something the world has never seen before,” member Jenny told Rolling Stone. “Our hip-hop is not rebellious. But I think we’re doing great music.” 안전공원
“My mom and dad are proud of me, but I don’t feel like I’m a world star,” member Ji-soo said adding, “My position may have changed, but I’m just (previously) me.”
